Brolga – the amazing dancing bird


Brolga is a wetland bird and it lives in tropical and south-eastern Australia. Brolgas are famous for their courting dance. This large bird dances, leaping a meter in the air and calling as part of bonding and breading.  There is an opinion they dance also for pleasure. I was able to see a dancing brolga only once. My biggest surprise – was seeing brolgas flying early in the morning over Simpson Desert.

Where spotted: Darwin NT, Kimberley WA, Simpson Desert, Karumba QLD
